Australian construction sites have been experiencing delays and rising prices due to a sharp increase in global demand for building products during the COVID19 pandemic. One of the key factors driving the construction boom in Australia has been the HomeBuilder scheme, which provides owners tens of thousands of dollars in grants to build new homes or renovate their existing properties. A key element of Homebuilder is that construction on qualified projects must commence within six months of contracts being signed. With the deadline placed on sites nationwide, there have been concerns that some projects may miss out on government support due to delays.
Housing Industry Association Chief Economist, Tim Reardon states that “Certainly the six-month timeframe from when the contract is signed to the commencement acts as a significant constraint on the number of projects that will be built this year. Typically, we would see a domestic home completed within seven months. This year, that’s probably going to stretch out closer to nine months.”
